This is a radio controled switch for the dust collector. The collector get a reciever unit and the tool get a transmitter unit. Once installed which means plugging it into the outlet then plug the tool into the switch you are ready to go. There isn't a limit as to how many transmitting units can be in the system. The switches can be obtained in both 120 volt and 220 volt for both the collector and the tools.

What a great product

Review Summary

This sytem works great. You address the switches, plug them into the outlet and plug the tool into the switch. It's done. From then on all you have to do is turn the tool on and 5 seconds later the collector turns on. Turn the tool off and the collector turns off. I have tried the Long Ranger and it broke. I have the Fein and it seems to be line of sight. I also have to look for the remote. This system solves the problems.
You need a reciever unit for the collector and transmitter units for the tools. (You can get by with one but then you plug and unplug tools.) Each cost about $50.

Automatic Dust control

Review Summary

This system was easy to set up and is a hassle saver for sure. Just be sure to match up the right model switch box with the volt and amp ratings of your collector. Then just plug the switch box in and plug your dust collector into the box and your done. Of course you still have to purchase a Pro Tool box for every tool you want this collector to operate( up to 8 tools per switch box). So it can get a little pricey but its a one time purchase per tool as these are warrantied for life.
And if your like me, always looking for ways to fight the N0.1 enemy in my woodshop( Dust) then this is well worth the cost.
